The Complacent Era is Over

For a full decade the midsized truck segment had only a few offerings which came with little competition. With no entries from both Ford and GM, many of the automakers that still had players in this category left them to give similar features and style year over year with no changes as they sucked up the segment and brought it down from the heights it once was. The end of this era is finally over with the release of the two midsized truck offerings from GM, the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon. Having these two show up in the style and capability they offer has sent many of the other truck building teams back to the concept room to come up with a new look and feel for their midsized trucks to be competitive.

Rides Some Stars Drive

Stardom and fame come with huge incomes and with such a large amount of disposable cash many of these celebrities choose to drive specially made vehicles.

Whether you find these cars and companies interesting, eccentric or just plain ridiculous, these cars are pretty cool to look at and learn what is inside them that makes them so special to these owners, even if the only special part is the statement that the owner has enough money to have something this cool.

2017 Will bring us a New Honda Ridgeline

The Ridgeline came in like gangbusters in a market that was saturated with full size and midsized trucks that offers excellent power but not as much of an attractive appearance as the Ridgeline. This truck which appeared on the scenes ten years ago to give us a truck that was a bit different than the rest. The Ridgeline made its way as the original unibody truck while the rest all had bed behind cab setups that nearly appeared to be completely separate and only attached by the frame underneath. (more…)

What Makes a Car Sexy?

  The old saying “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” may be true in human relationships, and many of us have our opinions about what is an attractive quality in a car, but overall, most cars offer a distinct appeal. Trucks and large SUV are brash, bold and rugged for the most part, some may find that sexy, but not obviously so.

Sports cars can be very sexy, but with the overdone performance and the aerodynamics involved show off an attractive appearance that might have many of us feeling the ride will be over way too soon.

From the Camry to the Camaro

When you want to talk about car guys, most NASCAR racers are genuine car guys at heart and love to be wrench turning garage jockeys whenever they can. Such is the case for Kyle Busch who spends several weekends each year in his Toyota Camry Sprint Series Cup car trying to ward off the other forty-two competitors and find his way to the front of the pack. The toll on his Cup car makes it impossible to use as a daily driver, not to mention the fact the Camry is not made for the street. (more…)
